Beaufort ~ Turkey Trot 2020
We have decided to move forward with a limited non-refundable registration of up to 250 participants for our in person LIVE Turkey Trot Event. We have cleared this with the necessary local, state and regional authorities and plan to host a fun, socially distanced event. We will continue to monitor the situation with the health of our participants, volunteers, supporters and staff at the forefront of our decisions.
Please note that the race will move to a virtual format if the federal, state, local agencies or the CDC determine that it is not advised to host an in person event on Thanksgiving. We will also work closely to monitor the “right” number of people to host at a LIVE race event. We will use order/date of registration to determine which participants will be allowed to run in a live event if the number is less than 250. For example, if we are limited to groups of less than 100 for the race then we will take the first 100 registered for the live platform and transfer the remaining to the virtual platform.
Please note that we have added the ability to register as a Virtual Participant. Virtual participants will be able to have their shirt mailed or come by packet pick-up to get theirs in advance. We will make a best effort to mail shirts prior to the event for those requesting this.
